INGREDIENTS

  • 16 oz lean sirloin steak
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped

  • 1 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 6 oz dry whole wheat egg noodles
  • ¼ cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat a large sautee pan to medium high heat. While pan is heating, slice steak thin and add to pan. Season with a good amount of salt and pepper. Sautee steak until it’s all browned. Remove from skillet and set aside in a bowl.
  2. Put skillet back on stove and pour in olive oil. Add onions and mushrooms and cook for a while until onions and mushrooms are very soft. About 6-7 minutes or so.
  3. Add four to veggies in pan and stir around until flour is all coated on the veggies.
    Add both broths, stirring or wisking as you do. Bring to a simmer, add meat back into the pot, cover and simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Add egg noodles and try to get as much covered with liquid as you can. It’s ok if the noodles stick out a little bit . Cover and let simmer another 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the noodles are soft and most of the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Add lemon juice and stir around. At this point you could stop if you wanted a dairy free option. If not, add the greek yogurt and stir until completely incorporated. Enjoy!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas
Container count per enchilada: 1 red, 1½ yellow, ½ blue, ¼ green
INGREDIENTS

  • 4½ cups cooked chicken, diced

  • ¾ cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1½ cups shredded cheddar or Mexican-blend cheese
  • 6 flour tortillas (soft taco size)
  • taco seasoning, to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and prepare a casserole dish by spraying it with cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, toss the cooked chicken in as much taco seasoning (the 21 Day Fix’s Southwest Seasoning is perfect for this) as you prefer, and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the corn, half of the Rotel tomatoes, onion, half of the cheese, and the Greek yogurt and stir until well combined.
  4. Microwave the tortillas for a few seconds so they’re more pliable, then lay them out. Spoon ¾ cup of the chicken in the middle of each tortilla. Then spoon equal portions of the veggie and cheese mixture on top of the chicken.
  5. Roll up the tortillas and place in a baking dish. Cover the tortillas with the remaining tomatoes and cheese.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Broil for 5 minutes or less to brown the cheese.

Sweet Corn and Zucchini Pie


Sweet Corn and Zucchini Pie
Container count per serving: ¼ yellow, ¼ red, ½ blue, ½ green, ½ tsp
INGREDIENTS

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 ears sweet corn
  • 2 large zucchini, sliced thin (about 4 cups)
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces shredded cheese (I used both Mozzarella and Swiss)
  • 3 eggs, beaten

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Heat the butter in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions, zucchini, and mushrooms. While the veggies saute, cut the corn kernels off the cob. Add them to the pan and continue to saute until the veggies are soft, 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Add the basil, oregano, and salt. Stir once to combine. Add the cheese and the beaten egg. Line a pie pan (9-inch or larger) with parchment paper or just grease a pan with nonstick spray. Transfer the mixture to the pan. Arrange the top so the zucchini slices lay flat and look nice. Top with a little extra cheese for looks, cover with greased foil, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes to brown the top. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before cutting into slices.
